Nice place to go with families or with your loved ones. Food is really tasty. Prices also in high end. Only issue is the taken time for arranging ordered foods to table. If they improve it effectively this place is really good.

Great food, especially the hot butter cuttlefish. Service takes a while though. Toilets could be cleaner
